I can see a lot of hubs on the same subject that I am writing about and they haven't been flagged as adult content. There are hubs on sex and male enlargement, so why is mine being flagged, at first I was flagged for overly promotion and I fixed that, now another flag for adult content??? COMMON! I know I'm new here but this just seems ridiculous like I'm being picked on. Why is my Hub being singled out and the first time it was flagged why didn't it get flag for adult content? Something is not right and I hate feeling like the time I spent writing it is wasted. I was really hoping to be a part of this community but this just feels like Squidoo and it's new censorship policy.
That must be horrible for you - you poor pretty girl with a genuine interest in helping men to grow their penises bigger. What a shame you are not able to share your valuable techniques here.
Perhaps your own website?
You miss the point Mark, who are to judge what I choose to write about? Yes! I have a genuine interest in helping...what about the numerous hubs on subjects more controversial or sexual? They're all live.
Ps. My hub does not have graphic pictures or content.
Ohhh, you are killing me
Thank you for genuine giggles!
my grandma always say, you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar, so in your case be sweet with the team,ask the team to explain what content in your hub is not acceptable and revise it,make all the changes that they require and you will be fine
It may just be bad luck, Sara - the HubPages team is a small one and can't be everywhere at once. Sometimes they miss "illegal" Hubs for quite some time, other times they pick them up immediately.
Just remember that the rules are not set by HubPages. We all depend for our income on Adsense. If any Hubs break Adsense rules, it puts the whole site's earnings in jeopardy.
Unfortunately Adsense is not only a prude, but a dumb robotic prude. People who write serious Hubs about sexual matters fall foul of the rules because of the words used - whereas saucy pictures of semi-clad women are allowed. I'm sure the HubPages team think the rules are as stupid as we do, but they have to safeguard our livelihood. Be thankful for that!
Before my hub was suspended, it was published and there was google adsense on it. I have a blogger blog with google adsense on the subject, so I know it's not google's policy. I think it's just bad luck and who ever reviewed my hub used their discretion but I really don't believe I broke any rules with the content.
Why don't you email the Hubpages team and ask them what they view the problem as and then when they tell you change your Hub to fit the rules?
I'm not exactly sure what on your Hub is being flagged.
If it was flagged for not being original content or duplicate work is available somewhere else, then that's the reason it was flagged.
As for the adult content? This depends on what mature content you're trying to put on?
Adsense forbids it's ads on any mature rated content. So, the Hubs that you do see on certain things, there is a difference between writing about a topic or being pornography.
That fine line is demonstrated throughout ALL my photo Hubs. Each of my photo hubs are okay by the standard of HubPages. These hubs are not adult content or even mature, because each of them have clothes on.
I hope I helped.
Btw- if you're really want to push the boundaries- check out my demonstration of sensuality or erotica. It's a hub about an intimate friendship that has a tender touch.
Then you can also check out Lyricsingray's hub
With all these different forms of Hubs, you should be able to gauge what won't get flagged.
I just did that but I had to vent here a bit because I wrote my first Hub 2 days ago and I was so excited but now the excitement is gone, I had so many ideas but can't bring myself to write because not sure if it'll be a waste of my time.
If you're writing about things that violate HP's ToS then yes, it will be a waste of time.
Because others have managed to slip through the cracks doesn't mean that it's okay for you to publish something against site rules.
I imagine that the other violations will eventually get caught and also dealt with if they run afoul of the ToS.
When you were a child and made your first steps that was exciting,but i know you fell down many times,if you never get up and try again you would never learn to walk,well guess what, if you have great ideas just keep on writing,eventually you will get on, im cheering for you,i know i will read your hubs real soon,have a bless day.
Rest assured, we're not picking on you particularly.
Sometimes, a hub will be removed for one reason, and then upon resubmission, we notice something else. In this case, your hub was overly promotional for too many links, and adult because of the product you were promoting.
You are always free to contact us and ask for more information if you are unsure why your hub has been moderated.
you cannot say fairer than that..... a happy ending for sure
All new hubbers are picked on by staff and senior hubbers for a period of 90 days.
Please check the TOS under "hazing policy".
I am writing a new hub...I will try to follow all the rules. I can write about dating right?
were you writing a hub about penis enlargement?
was it platonically written, or was it written in a porn way?
I'm sure there shouldn't be a problem if the hub was done in a platonic way - there are just no porn hubs allowed.
If your hub was done in a medical or self help sort of way, I don't see why there would be a problem, as I'm sure breast re-sizing hubs would be allowed.
The business is allowed to make it's rules against porn, but if you are seeing an unfair discrimination, that's when you have a case.
Otherwise, there's no case. Unfortunately, as things are changing, there are still many unaccepted things out there which are "unfair" gender wise - I've run into them myself.
Good luck with creating a non porn hub dealing with that subject.
It would almost sound as though you want to be singled out. Rewrite the hub, or change the subject matter, but keep writing, or else quit. Your post sounds like you want to quit, so make your mind up and do it, there are a lot of things to write about, and we really do have fun here.
You have a very get along attitude young lady,thats clear by your posts.Learning the ropes is unsettling but as Roosevelt said to the Indians"Endeavor to persevere",but then look what happened to them.HP needs people with your attitude.Don't let the negative comments put you off.Pay attention to the constructive ones.
"Learning the ropes is unsettling but as Roosevelt said to the Indians"Endeavor to persevere",but then look what happened to them."
Would you say the Indians were successful in there perseverance?Encouraging new writers is not as prevalent as it should be.Painting a rosy picture is just as negative as the caustic comments made in the forums.The Implication of the comment is to write on with the awareness that success is not guaranteed........Hmmmmmmmm.
Wow you have received some great advice. I wish you all the luck with your writing and I for one look forward to reading your opening story.
Thanks, I truly appreciate it, you guys really made me feel welcome in this community. I can't wait till my new hubs are approved. Isabelle, you just gave me an idea of a hub to write, I think I'll go ahead and take care of that right now.
wish Hub team would get on the ball and publish her hub... I want to know what all the fuss is about
For sure, it certainly gets your curiousity going and I bet we aren't the only ones lol.
Just another scam.
Like running your car on water or forex trading. You really think you can enlarge your penis by doing an exercise? And this pretty young lady just wants to help? Maybe she will pop 'round to your house and show you how to do the workout?
The less scams the better as far as I am concerned, which is why I gave a "negative" reaction to the OP.
And I thought you were all about increasing the quality here too?
Once there is one scammer here, the rest follow in droves. But what we really need is 10,000 pages on how to increase the size of your penis. That should increase the size of the site's authority. Right?
Hahahaha 10 press ups should do the trick! my wife will be impressed!!
You really are quite judgmental without knowing anything...Believe it or not, a man can increase the size of his penis with exercises, it has nothing to do with scamming. Do the research before you open your mouth to speak. Do you even understand the meaning of a SCAM? If I was a scammer would I still be here? Would I bother to write other hubs about different things?..At first your comments were cute, but now you are just sounding like an annoying brat.
When is it going to be re-published as I need a big penis by sunday as the kids are going to be out for the day, so got things to do.
Well, I have a feeling for your size you will need exercises for a year or two to make any significant difference.
At 12 inches I still need it bigger, so can you help?
LOl...Wakeup, you must be dreaming if you really believe you're 12 inches, subtract 10 from the 12. And yes, you can be helped. Google dry Jelq. Do a search on it...it's a simple exercise that can help you or any other man with your penis size.
Well, I am all about seeing this hub now as you are so adamant.
Will the exercises make me lose weight and my hair grow back at the same time?
Sure they can. You can run your car on water and make a fortune trading forex also.
Now that I am making a fortune with forex and do not have to pay for gas, I will be signing up for the exercise equipment.
Why i always get into suspense thread,where is her content HP
Reading this thread, I admire the way you've handled all kinds of comments here. Cool.
You'll do well I'm sure...but its only HP staff that can help you with this, so best of luck! Looking forward to reading that hub!
How did you know Mark if it wasn't published. I have missed something lol.
didn't say i wanted to see it stay published, lol I just want to see what the big deal is, I have seen some pretty risque hubs and more than my share of hubs that had about 25 words and a link to some BS scam but I like to see what is out there and what to be watching for. I flag them when I find them, I had 2 of my hubs flagged for over promotional and my hubs are more informative than promotional, I am not selling anything or asking anyone to sign up anywhere and I have very few affiliate links to anything other adsense and amazon
Funny thing is, the hub that began all this does not have an affiliate product in it any longer, I took it out because now all I care about is just having it shown. It's not the greatest hub in the world but it was my very first hub and that's why it's important to me. Am not sure if that makes any sense.
LMAO, you guys r terrible, May I just say that if none of us have seen her hub should we really be judging it? also just because she believes something that the rest don't doesn't mean she shouldn't be heard. I personally don't believe in penis enlargement, never needed it, the thing hangs to my knees already...LMAO I also don't really believe in all of the health food crap out there either but I don't see the ones who promote it being judged...honestly if the hub is spam or too promotional then it should be fixed but I don't think we should be judging without seeing it.
Thank you...It's a hub not life and death. But the choice to believe facts is still your choice, it does not change facts. Whether you believe it or not, the fact will remain FACT
That's right we don't have to read it if we don't want to.
you only think you have problems read my new hub on Love...
If it's not going to be published here then post it on blog of yours that settles the issue. It's better to get content out there instead of debating about it,right ?
I am waiting for the revision, hopefully it will happen later today and I already have two hubs waiting for approval before going live, I am writing one of them right now and I have been a member for only 3 days, so if all my hubs are approved today, I should have 3 live hubs up before the end of the day.
Your score is going below 50 so each of your hub will be reviewed now. You need to have patience in order to lift your score and getting out of that submission-queue.
Oh, really? Is that how it works? I had no idea, I was wondering what the number symbolized. Thanks for telling me. So the way to raise it up is by posting more hubs?
I have the other problem - do you have any exercises for reducing the length of my penis as it is becoming very inconvenient.
I keep tripping over it and, if it drags along the floor, the cats keep chasing the end. They have very sharp claws
Thanks in advance
lol...you are a lil pervert. tripping on yourself, thats disgusting.
hehe - In reality, it is so cold here that he has gone into hiding and will not emerge until the spring
Oh Sufi u r so modest. Do you not remember it was me responsible for your super rod after I accidentally got it caught in the bathroom door when you were getting ready to do your nudey run from the shower..
I like to exercise my penis 4 or 5 times a day, I'm not sure its got any bigger but its certainly been a lot of fun trying.
LOL You seem like a decent little girl, and I would gladly let you train mine - but without expecting it to get any bigger. You've been lied to, and tricked into believing the lie.
Trust the old grumpy soul, you will do much better when you switch your promotional effort to something more sustainable. And no, I don't mean a lemon cleanser or water4gas or any other miracle, I mean something real.
lol, Another pervy old man, don't be fooled, I might be new to hubpages but I am not new to the internet. If I pick a niche, I know exactly what I am doing and I have prove that it works. I pick niches from my own life.
You mean you grew one and became a tranny?
I am no doubt a pervert, but this is too much even for me
Good luck making it publishable with adsense, and you've been warned
LOL Those 1% or so people for whom Forex is real do not need this crap about Forex that other 99% sell to each other.
MY very first approved Hub is now live...It's called confessions of a Hubpages Newbie...Please take a look and leave comments on what you think about it and how I can improve, if you think I need improvement (looking at you Misha). Thanks guys.
Are you a girl or guy? Not being rude was just wondering Sara?

I would like to make a suggestion to the TEAM here on HUB Pages. I feel that it would be a positive improvement here on the HUB, if all of the activity that is perpetuated by Hubbers, were made known.For instance... apparently - anyone can go around giving thumbs UP or DOWN to a fellow...

Do you often flag content on HubPages?I see a few hubs everyday that are in English, but poorly written. I hate to flag a hub if someone is just trying to start on HP, but I don't like reading poorly written hubs! What are your thoughts?
by Shil1978 7 years ago
HubPages has this wonderful feature called Hub Hopping or Hub Hop to flag low-quality/copied/spam content. I know some hubbers do use this and help HP staff weed out the substandard content. Here's one more reason why everyone should 'hub hop.' I came across this thread on a Google...

This forum is a place for you to post hubs that you think are clearly of low quality and need flagging. Committed hubbers should follow this forum and check these hubs posted for quality when they have the time. If a hub has been clearly copied (for example from a PDF file that the plagiarism...
